A List Of Every NHL Team Not Yet Linked To Shane Doan

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

As promised, a full and comprehensive list of every NHL team that hasn't surfaced as a potential landing spot for veteran free agent winger Shane Doan:

Blue Jackets

Now, the rest of the league:

"Shane Doan has spent his entire 17-year NHL career in the Western Conference with the Winnipeg/Phoenix organization, but his familiarity with the Rangers coaching staff could make New York one of the free agent left wing's preferred landing spots if he decides to leave the Coyotes."

"Have confirmed the ‪#Penguins‬ have made offer to UFA Shane Doan and there is mutual interest."


"Sources say they are enamored with Phoenix winger Shane Doan, who would be a perfect fit for the orange and black."

"Doan, of the Phoenix Coyotes, may not necessarily count as secondary scoring as he could come in and replace P. A. Parenteau on the first line."


"The Bruins have been interested in upgrading with a veteran forward this summer, but Peter Chiarelli hasn't found the right fit in free agency for that "Recchi-type." Veteran free agents this season largely haven't been interested in wearing Black and Gold. Both Ray Whitney and Doan would have been perfect fits for the Bruins, but Boston simply isn't geographically desirable for some players."

"If we want to play the guessing game, the Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets could be other possible teams who offered Doan that contract. Like the Hurricanes, the Senators and Jets also have around $20 million in cap space and have been pursuing forwards this off-season."

"Two other teams to report having made offers to Coyotes C Shane Doan - Buffalo & Detroit."

"The Maple Leafs are among a dozen teams that have made exploratory calls to Shane Doan, captain of the Phoenix Coyotes, who opened himself up Monday to the idea of leaving the only NHL franchise he's ever played for just as it was facing another threat to its existence. A source confirmed to the Star the team made serious overtures to Doan's agent, Terry Bross."


"L'agent de Doan, Terry Bross, a confirmé que le DG du CH, Marc Bergevin, l'avait contacté et que son client avait aussi un intérêt pour le Canadien."

"For starters, Shane Doan of the Coyotes should get a long, hard look. One of the few true top-six forwards available as an unrestricted free agent, Doan is a 16-year NHL veteran who has scored 20 or more goals in 11 of the last 12 seasons."


"Doan, 6 feet, 1, 223 pounds, would fit in with the Lightning, which wouldn't mind adding a legitimate top-six wing. The team did trade for Ben Pouliot and Yzerman said he will get a chance to fit in on the top two lines, but Doan would be automatic."

"Doan's all-around game paired with leadership and offensive ability could help make the Jets more than just a playoff contender next season. Doan's history with Winnipeg makes him one of the fan favorites, which probably intrigues the Jets all the more."


"Doan's agent, Terry Bross, confirmed Monday the Hurricanes were one of the teams interested in Doan."

"St. Louis is one of 11 NHL teams to reach out to unrestricted free agent forward Shane Doan; Doan's agent confirmed the contact in an email on Monday."


"Through a brief email correspondence with agent Terry Bross, we here at The Predatorial learned today that veteran Phoenix Coyotes captain and right-winger Shane Doan could be a possible target for the Nashville Predators."

Red Wings
"'I've had conversations with Shane Doan's representatives,' Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said. 'I told them we have interest.'"


"Shane Doan's agent, Terry Bross, said not only have ‪Blackhawks‬ contacted them, but also that Doan has interest in joining Hawks."

"Among other teams, Doan has spoken with Canucks assistant general manager Laurence Gilman about the possibility of the veteran signing with Vancouver."


"Shane Doan could be on the open market today, and the Avalanche remains a team with a lot of money to spend if it wants. So why not throw some of it Doaner's way?"

"If Doan should test the free agent waters, it would likely be in Steve Tambellini's best interest to find his agent's number and give him a ring on the telephone."


"It's not much of a secret that in a perfect world, Doan wouldn't leave the Phoenix Coyotes."

"'Yes, very much so,' responded agent Terry Bross in an email after being asked if San Jose was still on Doan's list of potential landing spots. 'He is very intrigued should things not work out here.'"


"Yes, the Kings did make an offer to Shane Doan."

"Ever since it became clear that Doan could hit the open market, the Dallas Stars were considered one of the premium destinations of choice for the veteran right winger. The Stars, at the time, had a wide open spot for such a player on the right wing and with the addition of Ray Whitney, it was clear the Stars were looking to add that proven veteran leadership as the franchise transitions to a new core of young players."
